Each day brings us closer and closer to November 3rd.The day of Ragnarok. And slowly details and photos are leaking regarding the film. Recently images surfaced of the new Lego mini figs. In fact it seems loose figures have begun making it onto eBay with large prices from China.
Feel free to look online for more photos regarding Thor and whatnot. Our focus here is the Hulk. Looking at the Gladiator Hulk mini-figure I realized I missed out on another new feature of this Hulk. His tattoos/body paint. If you see the artwork leaked some months back you can kind of see the marks but they blend in with the highlights. I missed them. But with this latest figure it confirms the basic new look for the Hulk. The armor, of course, being expected given the photos from SDCC.
Each new reveal makes me even more pumped for the new movie. Given there is so much Hulk in this it actually makes me sad this movie doesn’t have the dual title of Thor & Hulk: Ragnarok! Alas, we Hulk fans will take what we can get. I just hope they do the character justice. Especially if they plan for him to open his mouth in this installment.
Dropping today (1/27/17) a new trailer teasing a new Marvel Avengers game featuring Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk!The theme of the trailer was reassembly and needing heroes. For a brief moment you see a pair of broken glasses and hear the Hulk’s distant roar.
What’s exciting about this is the game developers involved. We are talking the talents of studios behind Final Fantasy and Deus Ex making this game. Could it be we are getting a fully fleshed out Avengers game and not just some Lego kiddy adventure?
If so I am so pumped to play as the Hulk! I would love another stand alone Hulk game but I’ll certainly take this in the meantime. Check out the trailer below. Hopefully we get more details soon.
San Diego Comic Con is over but it has left us with plenty to be excited about. In addition to the super sweet Gladiator armor for the Hulk (to be featured in Thor: Ragnarok) seems a new animated Hulk movie has been announced.
Due to arrive in Fall of this year, ‘Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell’ is to feature our green goliath co-starring alongside Dr. Strange. No doubt in order to drum up excitement for the new Dr. Strange movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Given the film is releasing in November I am going to predict ‘Monsters Dwell’ will release in October to coincide with the Halloween season.
The Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D.
To further support my prediction, Strange and Hulk will be joined by the Howling Commandos. This name is attributed to a few military groups within the Marvel Universe. Most notably they were featured more or less in the first Captain America movie. However,the report given on this film details the words “monster team”. So I am assuming its the more ferocious team shown here.
If this wasn’t exciting enough it’s been promised this film will be more “adult-oriented”. In such the way it is being compared to DC’s soon to be released “Batman: The Killing Joke” movie. This alone is great because after having to deal with the absurdity that was the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. I am so ready for Hulk to go nuts!
With all this said I think we Hulk fans have something to look forward to. I know I’m excited and I’m ready to get SMASHED!
Latest Update – RELEASE DATE AND SNEAK PEEK – 10/10/16 (first released clip)
PREMIER ANNOUNCED – 9/13/16

Coming in November 2017 is Thor: Ragnarok. Now yes I do like Thor, but he’s not the reason I am going. I am going for Hulk. And recent news has made me even more excited. Thor’s next movie will feature ALOT of the Hulk. Or at least more then in previous films.
Mark Ruffalo is quoted as saying “I think it will be smashing. The Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk hulks out. Hulkier and bigger.”
I am so stoked for this. I was admittedly let down by the amount of screen time for Hulk in the last Avengers film, specifically in the last battle. Also they removed much of the fun that Hulk had in the first film. I don’t mind a darker Hulk/Banner story but Hulk is in a sensitive time now. He needs to grow a following in the cinematic Universe. Keep him as fun as possible while sticking to the source material. The first Avenger’s movie did that.
So here I am waiting patiently for next Fall when I can once again don my Hulk fists.
Well…I’m ready to get Smashed. Are you?
So I think it’s easy to say us Gamma Bros and Gamma Girls have been vindicated in our love for the Green giant. Since the first Avengers movie he has exploded in popularity. I have seen more toys, blankets, clothing, animated shows, etc in recent years then in any year previously.
And still we have yet to receive a new solo Hulk film. And I can understand, the previous Hulk films did not receive enough love (at least when compared to Iron Man or Thor). I feel this is mostly due to the fact of budget and story malleability. It cost’s a lot to put the Hulk on screen in comparison to having Robert Downing Jr walk around in a costume. And it is difficult to adapt Hulk to various situations. As a purely action character he does amazingly, but its the quiet moments Hollywood is only beginning to show effectively.
Lets not also forget the Hulk is still tied up with Universal. They still hold rights to the character and I can see them not wanting to let him go just yet. But fear not, Marvel has found a loophole in this. Marvel may not have exclusive rights to Hulk…but they do have rights to the Avengers…which includes Hulk. So a solo Hulk film may not be in the works…but an Avengers film that features Hulk and another Avenger is possible (And this indeed seems to be where things are heading).
Recent news has come out stating the next Thor film will feature Hulk in a very specific way. In addition this story that begins in Thor’s film will continue into other Marvel’s film equating to a solo Hulk story. If you aren’t geeking out yet I certainly am doing it for you.
What kind of story could this be? Well there has been much clamor for a Planet Hulk and/or World War Hulk film. Since Thor tends to deal with issues outside the Earth…maybe he will meet up with Hulk in space? Maybe elements of Planet Hulk will be incorporated into Thor’s new film. And maybe…just maybe this could lead into a World War Hulk scenario. It’s mostly conjecture at this point. Honestly, I would be soooo happy to just see Hulk in full gladiator armor battle once in a full arena on some alien world.
Even if World War Hulk doesn’t happen, a gladiator Hulk would make the wait we have all experienced worth it. So we may not be seeing a Hulk title on the big screen anytime soon…but that doesn’t mean we can’t get angry with a smile.
A neat video I found. It’s not bad. I’ll let the title speak for itself. Enjoy.
So a recent posting from SDCC 2015 revealed an updated cover of the future mean green. And as you can see his new “helmet” is distinctly Asgardian-like. Could this new Hulk also be the new Odinson? Is this new Hulk a God? Not sure if I hate this idea…or if it could be an interesting direction to take. Hulk as a God I certainly like…but if he goes around speaking in ‘thou arts’ and stuff….hmmm I don’t know. I am very concerned about the future of my Hulk.
Or could this all be a joke to lead readers off the scent?…
